GAINESVILLE, Ga. — A dive team dipped below the surface of Lake Lanier on a rescue mission. They weren’t searching for someone – but something.
“I’m getting ready to dive for a diamond ring – a diamond earring,” Bobby Griffin said.
The self-described “Scubaman” of Lake Lanier, Griffin was on a mission along with salvage diver Richard Pickering to uncover a bit of a treasure from the lake – though not one long-ago abandoned at the bottom of this man-made lake.
“Yeah, it was worth a little bit,” Julio Jones said.
